What, no avatar yet?

By Steve Outing

On this blog (and many others), if you post a comment your personal avatar will automatically accompany your comment — assuming that you have an avatar assigned to your e-mail address using either Gravatar or MyBlogLog (both free services).

Many of you have yet to assign yourselves avatars. These can be comic characters (as I use) or graphic illustrations, or photos (of yourself or some object). So how about it? I’d love to see more photos and illustrations accompanying your comments!

(And I have some personal interest in this, since one of the projects I’m working on will let people create personal avatars. That’s not ready yet, but there are plenty of other options for creating avatars of yourself; or just use a photo.)
